I had the same problem, my mechanic has had this same problem with other 2003 grand caravans. Flush the power steering fluid, replace it with ATF+4 and add Lucas power steering additive. Apparently dodge has posted the fluid that was originally used is causing this problem. $100 and it is purring like a kitten

Check the battery first. Just because the lights are on doesn't mean it has enough power to start the van. If you or the van has a volt meter, the battery should read at least 13-14 volts to be good. If the battery is good then the alternator is good and we move on to the starter solenoid. I'm sure it's one of these. Do the lights go off or very dim when you turn the key? If so then battery.

Testimonial: "Thank so very much! It was the battery and easily fixed with a new duralast from AutoZone!"
SOURCE: How do you reset the
-Turn the key to the run position (where all the dash lights come on)
-Immediately push the accelerator pedal to the floor 3 times, taking about 1 second for each push
-The pedal has to go all the way to the floor and all the way back up.
-After the third pump, turn the key to the off position
It may take a couple of tries to get it right. It's basically a rhythm: key on...push...push...push... key off.
Hope this helps!

You will need a big C clamp and a 21 mm socket.
Remove the wheel.
Use the C clamp to compress the front brake piston:
Just put the screw side of the c clamp on the outside brake pad and the frame part of the c clamp on the back of the caliper and turn the c clamp in until it won't compress further. You don't have to over-do it. Don't force it and don't do this with the back brakes...they require a tool that rotates the piston as it compresses... Hint: rent it from auto zone for free.
Once the piston is compressed, use the 21mm socket to remove the two caliper bolts and then tie up the caliper so it doesn't hang down in the way and stress the brake lines.
Then you need to bang on the rotor with a mallet until you free it and it will come off. You may need to hammer it pretty hard.
Assemble in reverse.
